founded the church in 1954 and while the religion has been a positive, transformative experience for some, it has long been shadowed by allegations that people have been emotionally and sometimes even physically abused. >> i don't think anybody would join scientology in order to be abusiv abusive. they go into scientology because they want help. but at a deeper level, you go further and further into the church, the distortions become more and more apparent. and it's at those levels that i think scientology has lost its way. >> why do you think the church is so controversial? >> it has a history of being very vindictive and litigious. and it has a history of infiltrating the government and spying on people. and so it has created an atmosphere of fear that surrounds it. >> in the 1970s, the church launched a massive espionage effort called operation snow white because the church believed the government was collecting information damaging to the church. fall ollowing an five raid, 11 scientologies, including hubbard's wife, were convicted of entering numerous agencies and stealing documents.

status and value is money, by which we purchase self-esteem. the net result is the message of religion is not being heard. we are seeing men feeling disenfranchised, angry, broken and rage-filled. they retaliate against a society that they feel demeans them and belittles them. >> that's the rage part. >> absolutely. >> father, let me go to you on this. if the family is broken as so many are, if there's no father, then how does the young man -- i'm going to use the young man in this case, it could be a young woman, but it seems to be coming from men, how does he learn character or good deeds? how does he learn the difference between right and wrong and responsibility? >> well, if he doesn't have the father he's going to get it through devious channels. through the media. and we know what that feeds them. but we're talking about the breakdown of african-american families this is endemic, pandemic. you have got 53% out of wedlock births along latinos and almost 30% now amongst white families. so when we look at the situation in newtown, this was a suburb suburban -- this is not a ghetto e

to recognize scientology as a religion and was demanding it pay $1 billion in back taxes. after a bitter legal battle, the irs relented and granted tax exempt status. >> there will be no billion-dollar tax bill which we can't pay. there will be no more discrimination. >> i think scientology has a lot to account for because it's protected as a religion under the first amendment. it's able to get away with a lot of things. >> reporter: author lawrence wright has written a new book out today called "going clear, scientology, hollywood and the prison of belief." wright says the victory over the irs allowed scientology to build capital and power, power, he says, the church has exploited. >> what they're doing is abusing their own members, shaking them down for money, wreaking vengeance on people that disagree with them, punishing its critics and physically abusing people and holding them against their will inside the highest levels of the church. >> reporter: the church will say complaints like this come from malcontents and that they have no credibility. do they seem credible to you? >> well, ther

on if you are a woman, a set of protections on your religion. i don't think many people realize in this country, if you are a transgender woman or a transgender man or gay or lesbian, you can lose your job in many states in this country. >> there's been legislation on it since 1974. it's been discussed in congress. we do not have this. it's something the president can put his weight behind and push for as well. there's something else i want to mention. california passed a law banning ex-gay therapy. it's being challenged, which is unfortunate, it would be nice to see a presidential endorsement. i think you could see expansion across the country. suicide and homelessness. a fourth of homeless people are lgbt. i think we could see movement on that as well. >> it's one of those things we realize the presidential bully pulpit is quite powerful and other times it feels not powerful at all. on this issue, he's moved the ball repeatedly. thank you. up next, remember when some people thought electing barack obama meant america was post racial? yeah. not so much. when we come back.

in much of the liberal wings of the political party towards organized religion. i think it's intolerance of the left twashd people of good faith on the right and that worries me. i wish colin powell had talked about that as well. i wish colin powell had talked about the implications of chunk hagel talking about the jewish lobby that intimidates people. he said, make the jews pay. colin powell could have talked about that and whether that was a dark strain or is his focus only on when republicans act wrong? chuck hagel did, too, in these circumstances. it's a topic worth discussing but needs to be discussed in every direction, not just one. tolerance needs to be taught and practiced by all. >> i think that's -- you know, i've got to say that's the sort of thinking by republicans that, seriously, gets in the way. as opposed to attacking, you know, clearly there's issues with the republican party and minorities in this country. >> it's a one-way street. >> a false equivalence about democrats and evangelicals that makes me scratch my head. taking in what colin powell has to say, look at the

is looking at all options right now with respect to what type of religions they choose. the -- what type of regulations they choose. i think the polling you showed bears it out. my reporting suggests it's probably the most likely one to be dropped ultimately in the end but they'll probably make some sort of push at the beginning. the key thing is they want to do universal background checks and thinks it's common sensoe refor any who buys a gun should be cleared and generally nra members are in approval of that and don't want nut bags to get guns. and make it's easier for law enforcement officials to track down illegal possession of guns and right now there's not a law to prevent gun trafficking. they want it on the books. they want common sense stuff and reach a little beyond that and let the crazies basically argue it's not smart and then the politics plays out the way they wan want. >> joe, you tweet and i re-tweeted the cover of "the daily news" and it's getting a good conversation. let's talk about the ni "huffington post" series, the road forward. president obama's second term chall
